Phil Reavis has been in about a dozen Muncie/Bloomington/Indianapolis bands over the years including several on the Bob Chaos compilation: The Disposable Airsickness Band, Atomic Butterfly and Soul Celtics, which is really the Mad Hatters… Phil was in Latent Chaos too, but not during their classic “Bob” period.
Outside of bands Phil has accumulated a bunch of rough sketches, songs, collaborations and improvisations many of which appear here on Driving Me Backwards, a sampler of his cassette four-track recordings from the last couple decades.
Listen.com: “Indiana musician does restrained Lo-Fi rock and Surf instrumentals. In the era of bombastic Dick Dale imitators, its nice to hear somebody who knows the value of the “Walk-Don't Run” aesthetic.”
Splendid E-Zine: “nothing too flashy -- just a nice instrumental journey through those lazy rural summer nights.”
Demo Universe: “If you're into guitar, and don't mind a lo-fi recording, it’s more fun than a barrel of Mosrites.”
